ギリシャ警察はピカソとモンドリアンによって盗まれた2枚の絵画を回収します

Greek police have recovered two paintings by 20th-century masters Pablo Picasso そして Piet Mondrian, アテネにある国内最大の州立アートギャラリーからの盗難から約10年.

A statement late on Monday said the two works were in the hands of the police, but provided no detail on their condition and on whether any arrests had been made.

The paintings were stripped from their frames during a well-organised overnight heist at the National Art Gallery on 9 1月 2012. The burglars had also taken a pen-and-ink drawing of a religious scene by the 16th-century Italian painter Guglielmo Caccia. They initially grabbed a fourth work, also by Mondrian, but abandoned it as they fled.

Police said at the time that the heist was completed in about seven minutes.

The stolen Picasso was a cubist female bust that the Spanish painter had donated to ギリシャ に 1949 with a dedication “in homage to the Greek people” for their resistance to Nazi occupying forces during the second world war.

The thieves also took a 1905 representational oil painting of a riverside windmill by Mondrian, the Dutch painter who became famous for his later, abstract linear works.
